Ads for weightloss prescriptions are all over the place, on TV and the radio, in magazines and newspapers, even on the Internet. They attract you with sincere testimonials, great before-and-after pictures and the predictable money-back guarantees. All you have to do is run out and acquire the most recent, hottest, this-one-has-got-to-work weight loss miracle in a bottle!   Not so fast. Get the weightloss facts before you fall for these promotion ploys.

There are many reasons to carry on with tremendous concern when using weight-loss capsules. Despite the fact that it’s genuine that now and again you may actually drop a little weight with them, the pounds go back once you end taking the supplement. Most of these weight loss quick fixes include a small-print counsel that you also accept a reduced-calorie diet and an exercise program which is going to help you shed weight anyway. And weight loss products in general aren’t well regulated, so the definite contents of the active ingredients in weight-loss prescriptions can differ widely from supplement to supplement.

Even more bothersome, all diet drugs have potentially unsafe side effects. Everyone knows that people who take prescription medications need to check with their heath care professionals before using any type of weight loss pill. But still well consumers who aren’t taking any further prescriptions have experienced harmful health effects from weight loss pills. The bottom line: Always check with your medical doctor before you take anything that promises to “melt off the weight.”

If you’re still thinking about taking a weight-loss pill, study the label for the active ingredients and verify out whether there’s any source to their claims and whether they’re potentially hazardous.

Find out the real deal on metabolism boosters, fat burners, carbohydrate depressors, fat blockers and more. Metabolism weight loss pills like, Ephedra have been banned.  The FDA banned ephedra in December 2003 due to serious concerns about its safety. But while you won’t find ephedra itself in diet-pill ingredient lists any longer, you will find ephedra-like compounds, including ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, methylephedrine and norpseudoephedrine, present in ma huang and other weight-loss aids (often in combination} with caffeine, which may worsen side effects). These ingredients potentially present the same dangers as ephedra: increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, insomnia, irritability, headaches, seizures, stroke, heart attack and even death. The safest route is to steer clear of all aids that enclose any of these substances.

After the FDA banned ephedra, weight loss-pill companies scrambled to find a possibly safer alternative. Enter synephrine, a substance made from the fruit of the citrus aurantium plant. Bitter orange, sour orange, green orange and zhi shi are other common names for this fruit. Synephrine acts roughly the same way as ephedra does in the body, but with potentially less side effects like high blood pressure and increased heart rate. So far, clinical studies show that synephrine may in fact help decrease craving and to some extent raise metabolic rate, especially when combined with other stimulants such as caffeine or white willow. Obviously, anyone who has high blood pressure or other heart problems should not utilize any of these substances without previous approval from her general practitioner.

Caffeine, which may help some consumers shed weight because it to some extent increases metabolism and may reduce hunger, hides in many diet-aid compounds: Yerba mate, cocoa extract, white willow bark, gotu kola and guarana are some of the more familiar caffeine-containing ingredients used in diet tablets. All of them have the potential to lift blood pressure levels, cause sleep trouble and make your heart beat too fast.

Garcinia, also called hydroxycitric acid, is a natural fruit acid extract from brindall berries. Experts argue over its possible value in diminishing appetite and growing the metabolic rate. Since there are few side-effects (the main one is nausea), it might be helpful for some dieters, but there isn’t enough proof behind its success to recommend it across the board.

Hoodia, a newer weightloss pill choice does look to have the promise for strong weight loss potential.  The famous thing about Hoodia is that it lacks the classic side effects of stimulant based diet pills and it has a long history of use as a food and appetite depressor, for generations by the Sans people of South Africa.  The San, a community that lives in the Kalahari, discovered eons ago that if they ate the Hoodia cactus that grows wild in the desert, their hunger pangs would go away. They would feel full and have no urge to over eat, whether or not food is set in front of them.  Genuine Hoodia Gordonii is by far the most efficient hoodia weight loss answer presently available. So how do you select from all the different brands? You want a hoodia aide that’s certified pure, that’s South African and that is whole hoodia gordonii plant rather than an extract. You want Actual Hoodia supported by a USDA protected plant permit and independent lab report as well as a Phytosanitary permit.  Then again, Phenternin was the only diet pill we could find with all of these certifications.
